Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Remediating the water damage to the structure of your home or business—the walls, flooring and ceiling—is only one part of the restoration services that SERVPRO of West Hartford provides. We also apply our modern equipment and advanced knowledge of cleaning techniques to restore your furniture, upholstery, clothing and other belongings damaged by the water. Additionally, most flooding and water damage situations also require professional odor removal and deodorization, since wet materials can give off a very distinct and unpleasant odor. We work closely with you to explain our cleaning and sanitizing options so that you get exactly the level of service you need and want.
